    @Mbarn - the adjustable has arrived a while ago I assume? Royal Mail seems to think so...

    Sorry, yes it did. I moved house over the same period, so apologies for not remembering to update!

    It’s a really nice razor, and I am very appreciative of the facility to try it.

    Should I hold on to it until the next person signs up, or post somewhere else?

    Can you PM me your address?
    I can get it posted early next week.

    I will make sure it’s cleaned with antibacterial soap and has had a barbicide soak so it’s shave ready.

    I’ll send you tracking when I post it, which will likely be Monday or Tuesday.

    Schick posted today, and tracking details sent to AJC.

    Thank you for the opportunity to try the razor. I very much appreciated it.

    I’m clearly an injector/SE man, as I just get more comfortable shaves with them.

    I cleaned the Schick with antibacterial soap and then barbicide. Added a few more blades in to the pack, so it’s ready for the next shave.

    Thanks
    Michael

    The razor is now with me and I had my first shave with it last night.

    [​IMG]

    I hadn't shaved in over a week so it had a small beards worth of growth to deal with.

    I set the razor on setting 8 and it mowed the stubble down without any problem at all.

    I tried the next two passes on setting 1 and setting 3 respectively and found that they struggled to shift the soap from my face (they reminded me of a Suoply Provision single dot plate somewhat).

    I used the Proraso Wood & Spice soap for the first time as well with one of my Epsilon White Horse Fan brushes. I enjoyed using the soap and could detect something of a smokey scent which I wasn't quite expecting. I finished off with some Wickhams Balm.

    All-in-all this was a great first shave with this razor.

    I'm a few more shaves in with this razor and whilst I'm still struggling to get to grips with the lower settings, the higher settings are fine.

    So far, it's not been as smooth a shaver as I was hoping it would be (based upon my experiences with other injector razors) and I'm going to try some different blades to see if they make any difference.

    I found the lower settings pretty useless as well. It's OK on the highest setting. I eventually sold mine as there was no benefit from the adjustability. What blade did you use in it? I found that Chicks and Twin blades worked best for me.

    I've been using some Personna's and will more than likely try some Chick's or some vintage blades next.

    When I had the razor, I tried the Personna and then used my Schick blades. The Schick were much better. I have quite a tough beard, but still managed to use the lower settings (within reason) with Schick blades.

    Well, I must say that the Chicks have transformed the razor.

    The shaves are much smoother and I'm able to get a decent head shave from the razor (on setting 8) now.
